Happy Friday Ya’ll. Time to queue up the Netflix Watch Instantly and/or hop on FearNet.com.
MST3K: Horrors of Spider Island
Bad movies are always best to watch with friends. But if you have no friends, MST3K will do the trick. In this movie, stupid stripper/dancer chicks are stranded on an island with their manager Gary. Once Gary is bitten by a spider, he, dun dun dun…starts to turn into one! Awful movie, but awfully funny to watch.
Killer Klowns from Outer Space
Clowns are scary in general but when they are aliens with special ray guns and the ability to turn you into popcorn (ps I hate popcorn) they are comically scary. The killer clowns terrorize a small town and it’s up to some ice cream peddlers, a dude and his chick and his chick’s ex-boyfriend/cop to stop them.
This is one of my childhood faves.
I didn’t see the trailer for this before I watched so at first I thought it was one of this British comedy type horror movies. Oh boy was I wrong.
A group of young folk party on a yacht, then they encounter a little accident (here’s a hint, it has to do with a donkey punch) panic turns to fight for survival.
I found some things in this movie a little bit ridiculous but I thought it was pretty good overall.
Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus
Speaking of ridiculous…. the title speaks for itself. Really. If you’re in the mood for a bad Sci-fi movie, dude, this is it. Not only does it have a mega shark AND a giant octopus but it has 80’s teen sensation Debbie Gibson. Win-win…win!
My non-horror pick that my non-horror follows will enjoy. Again, I throw out my love for anthology movies. Directors Joon-ho-Bong, Michel Gondry and Leos Carax each tell a tale that set around the city of Tokyo. Out of the three, I’m more familiar with Gondry’s work and I adore a lot of things that he does, including music videos. I find the trio of shorts are equally great and somewhat touching in their own ways. As much I’m directing this selection to my friends that aren’t into the gruesome things, I still think everyone will enjoy this film.
Saw II: Director’s Cut
If you’re looking to go back and see all the saw movies before the 7th comes out, here’s your chance to catch up on # 2. If you haven’t seen the first one, it’s best to do that before watching any of the series.
Ed Gein: The Butcher of Plainfield
There are many Ed Gein inspired movies but hey this one has Kane Hodder, Priscilla Barnes and Michael Berryman so it’s got a cool cast. Eh?
Have a great weekend!
